Wow, we scored yesterday with some excellent wave sailing conditions at Rmp 38 just south of Avon! Warm water, chest/head+ outside lined up wrap surf, sunny skies, and winds averaging 25+ mph set up for one of the best days so far this year! Only a few of us caught it, and was a great call for myself as a planned afternoon off work to trek down to Avon for the score! Riding the 4.5m Maui Sails Mutant and 75ltr Quatro Quad LS provided rock star performance in the surf zone! I am new to the Mutant, but found its handling superb with effortless control, excellent low end, and an extremely balanced feel while sailing. Combined with the 75 Quad LS, it simply excelled in the surf zone! FUN time!
Keith, Andy, and I were the local crew on hand, while Bertrice and Ace visiting the summer “secret season” were out as well enjoying the excellent conditions. Ken and the kite crew (Chris and Brian), also came down from upwind to end at Rmp 38.
All in all, an excellent, memorable session of wavesailing fun! Now, we need a steady two weeks of similar conditions to lead up to the AWT Hatteras Wave Jam coming in Sept!
If anything, I need the practice!?!
Not sure if there are any photos out there from the sesh yesterday. We were all sailing, and I do not think anyone was shooting. However, if something surfaces, will update!
Ah, and if you were ever wondering about the 4th of July (or this year, 5th), see this unique perspective of the fireworks display in Nags Head at the Fishing Pier! I remember seeing the drones flying during the show and thinking there would be some killer footage there! These guys captured it!
